NUST MISIS’s Young Scientists First in the World Create MAX Phase with Magnetic Properties

For the first time in the world, a group of young scientists from NUST MISIS have managed to synthesize a unique MAX phase with the inclusion of elements atypical for this class of substances — vanadium and iron. The innovative composition will provide the MAX phase with additional magnetic properties. The resulting hybrid material will be used in cutting-edge spintronics and micro-electronics.

A Key to the Cage: How to Open the Living Membrane Gate

The lipid membrane of a cell is the basis of every living organism. This membrane is an amazingly intuitive “fence” through which the cell communicates with the body, eats, protects against foreign invaders, and controls the flow of substances into and out of the cell. The complexity of it all is mind-boggling. Pores — optional holes in membrane — are the main tools of this biochemical “communication”. Pores act as a kind of gateway where scientists can actively study and describe cells and their functions.
